Hola Fernando! I'm really sorry for replying so late!
You got a killer concept there, that's something I have been thinking of doing in 3d for
a long time, so I will watch your progress extra!
You have a great way of drawing characters, even alien ones!
Would be delicious to see the scene later on!
Good luck, my friend!

Hello, Fernando!!

That's a very cool idea! One could say it's a swinging idea Love the drummers, especialy the right one looks great.

Keep it up! I would love to see how you develop it further.

Cheers, mate!

Dimitrij.

Hi Fer ! sorry my friend that I haven't replay that much! Its been a bit busy at work!

Back to your Alien's Rock Band!!

I like it! Lots of things to do! for the poses for your main guy! I will say do something that tells more than what a normal human rock star will do! Since it could be in a free gravitation stage? So he can perform as he will be on water or something like that! As for the drum guy I will say add more arms! Or fingers? I don’t know something amazing I guess? hahaha fav quote for sure! It's looking all the idea and sketches fantastically fun!

I mas vale que le bajes a la chelaaa ! jajaja puro tequila ahora! jaja! y lsd como buen rock star pa que te pongas a tono!

Nice studies there's a lot of dynamics going there.
The band should look pretty cool in the end.

Should be a fun entry

Hi Fernando, how about having more varieties in the body shapes for the aliens? Some could be almost insect-like, with multiple arms playing the specially made guitar and the like. The drummer can be an alien with a pair of heavyset arms, which is perfect for pounding a drum.

Also try to go for unconventional musical instruments that doesn't seem too human. It makes sense to have this for an intergalactical rock band.

Keep it up! Cheers!

Sergio - Thanks for your kind words mate! You are a musician and a 3D artist , that is really cool ! Glad that you liked the guitar poses. I dont know if cant use that poses because i dont have right know my final idea on the composition, but are useful to inmerse on the concept that i want ( acerca de donde soy, soy chilango , de que parte de México eres tu Sergio? Es bueno encontrarse con mexicanos por estos lares )

Peter - Thanks for your words mate! I think the band gonna play an alien varition of Van Halen's "Jump" Theme

Mark - Thanks my friend. I hope some day, if the image convinces me, maybe make a small video clip animated on 2D with this band. Thanks again my friend !! Cheers!!

Axel - I´m really glad that you have a lot of work my friend hahahahaha and glad that you liked the concept. You are right about of the many possibilites for the band's performance and taking note on your nice suggestions! Thanks for the support and encouragement my friend ( Si, haber que me fumo pa ponerme bien a tono con el concepto....... y que viiiiiivaaaaaa el rock'n roooooll y que viva el tri de México..... hahahahahahaha)

Spin - Thanks mate for your encouragement!! I really appreciate it. Cheers !!

Jerome - Thanks for your great support and suggestions my friend. I´m trying for now to download from my brain ( hahahahaah too many beers hahahahaah) a composition that works well with the concept. But for sure I try to explore different forms and instruments to the characters and hard try to match your superb entry Again really thanks for your support! Cheers!

Work In Progress: Composition A



dedicate this day to work on the composition for the concept. I found one that I like and do some pretty variations on it. Only 20 days, I hope that some of these works:)

This is the first. I focus mainly on the composition, working with human type characters, without pause now in the final design of the characters:)

Work In Progress: Composition B



This is the B variation, more open stage, more members of the band, and crowd hands :)

Work In Progress: Composition C



The final variation, composition C. Change to a vertical canvas. The stage is more closed and retains the hands of the crowd. I like the most this composition :)

Votes and comments are really welcome :D

Now we're talking, that's a really interesting shoot! I'll vote for C since it fits better the perspective and gives you a closer view of the characters, I really enjoy the way you twist your concepts time after time until you hit the spot! now we can only wait for the color to start to flow and this image to start to rock hard!


Very good indeed!!

Hi Fernando, good idea with the alien rock band, theres alot of ways you could work the aliens into the insturments. I'm going to vote B, I like those little critters on the sides in B, I don't see those in any other comp. I think c looks like a band poster which could also be a good idea to go with. Get going!!

-love
